IMO, making a move for a player is only one part of what he's looking for. I think he has a set goal in mind...say past 2nd round or something like that.
If he doesn't want the distraction of contract negotiations during the run up to the trade deadline, I would imagine he wouldn't want it throughout the playoffs.
My guess is that the quote where he said he wouldn't sign until after the deadline was after being asked specifically if he would sign before the trade deadline or if he thought he'd be trade bait. So he answered that question honestly ("after") and then clarified later on ("after the season").
